Age reduction for car renters

Europcar has reduced to 21 the age at which customers can rent one of its cars.

However, renters aged between 21 and 22 years old must pay a daily surcharge of £12.75.

For 23 and 24 year olds the daily surcharge is £8.50.

Drivers aged between 21 and 25 will also be restricted to the mini, economy and compact car groups.

In addition, Europcar has also decided to remove the upper age limit for renters.

“We don’t believe there should be an age limit for responsible driving, which is why we have expanded our service to include drivers from 21 upwards and no top age limit,” said Nick Harwood, sales and marketing director, Europcar.

The move brings Europcar in-line with its sister company, National Car Rental.
